Ludovica+Roberto Palomba_designers: "Faraway is an experiential kit made of items of relaxing and tactile form which identify a new 'tailor-made' wellness. Replacing the usual bathtime ritual in favour of an experience." Faraway/Vis-à-Vis was designed by studying organic asymmetric hybrid geometries that unite rigour and sensuality exploring new ergonomics whilst saving energy and water: the geometry of this bathtub expands and contracts to meet comfort requirements while ensuring significant water saving. The use of Cristalplant enhances the range's material and sensual qualities creating a bathroom devoted to sensual experiences that can be shared with others.
